Right to the gut.

The NFL draft had it’s share of great moments. Here are a few.
Ryan Shazier walking out on stage to announce the Steelers first round pick.
David Akers….owning it.
Shaquem Griffin getting drafted. Impossible is nothing.
Lebron being Lebron.
The first home goal for LAFC.
The Tennessee Titans did it again. Pounding beers and firing up the Nashville Predators crowd.
Meanwhile, San Francisco Giants third baseman turned into their best reliever.
And his reward, $0. But hey, bet he’d do it again.
Thats’s how you start a season!
Zlatan showed up in LA on Thursday.
Then on Saturday in the first derby between LA Galaxy and LAFC, Zlatan put on a display that put a smile on everyone’s face….unless you are an LAFC fan.
This might get better with age….
Here comes the….
Bell the bulldozer.
Julio Jones, laying the wood.
A boom in another form.
How to get suspended…do this.
And some days, you just don’t get along.
Then Gronk did this and Belichick had to apologize.
It use to be that no sports team in the city of Toronto won a championship. Now they’ve had two in a matter of weeks. First the Argos took home the Grey Cup and now Toronto FC took home MLS Cup.
Mascots who have a dance off? Yep, that’s winning.
Normally, cold opens as they are called are forced, overly done and meaningless. The open for the Army v Navy game was at times ‘overly done’ but man is it good.
Superman punches in hockey? Sweet. What’s next, axe kicks?
Joe Flacco is, allegedly, still alive.
Don’t mind me, just crashing your huddle.
Think you have this? WRONG!
And some days you just have to hold on….or not.
And this is how you should go into every Monday…..
The NFL games on Sunday are being overshadowed by the reactions of players, teams and owners to President Trump’s comments. Some players kneeled, other locked arms and some didn’t come out for the national anthem at all. All this can be discussed other places besides this blog.
What’d I’d like to focus on are games. The last second wins, the amazing catches and horrifically bad officiating that everyone can agree on were just bad.
Tom Brady: The Old Guy Who Can Through Dimes.
This is a 15 yard penalty…..really?
Oh just a little chip shot for the win…
How bout this for your first NFL catch?
Least we forget about Pierre Garcon’s catch from Thursday.
But still, OBJ will do OBJ things.
Then the Bears do Bears things.
MLS is coming down the home stretch and still give us some amazing moments week in and week out.
But nothing may beat DC United’s Patrick Mullins scoring 4 goals…..in 31 minutes.
And the squirrel.
It was suppose to be a big weekend for sports. There was the return of college football,MLB pennate races, MLS rivalry week and of course the ‘biggest fight ever’. This all of course has ended up being eclipsed by Hurricane Harvey which has put the Houston area underwater.
The remnants of the storm have put sporting events up in the air as teams, schools and games figure out what to do next. Rice’s football team returns from Sydney, Australia is in question. The team was beaten up by #14 ranked Stanford 62-7 on Saturday night. They are due to land in Los Angeles on Monday and from there they will have to make a decision on what to do next.
Rice is among a couple of schools and games that have their first week up in the air.
The Houston Texans will be practicing in Dallas for the week. They changed their travel plans after their game against the New Orleans Saints on Saturday night. After the game on Thursday in Dallas, it’s up in the air on what the Texans will do next.
The Houston Astros are also heading to Dallas after their series against the Los Angeles Angels over the weekend. Whether or not they will play the Texas Rangers this week in Houston is up in the air.
Things got ugly on Thursday after what essentially relates to ‘baseball rules’. The rule goes, you hit our main guy, we hit your main guy. Sometimes it goes off without a hitch. Other times it turns into this.
The best catch of the year may not be in the major leagues but in the Little League World Series.
Floyd Mayweather defeated Conor McGregor by TKO in the 10th round. It wasn’t really a surprise unless you really thought that an MMA fighter was going to beat the best boxer of all time in a boxing match.
Despite all the hype from those in the combat sports realm, the event was far from a sellout. According to the LA Times, T-Mobile arena was 6,000 people short of a sellout.
We’ve had better Saturday’s in the world. Despite the return of Premier League
Even if you are not a Washington Nationals fan, seeing one of the games best players go down with a possible season ending injury is just a punch to the gut.
With Bryce Harper out, the Nationals could be in a lot of trouble when it comes to the post season.
As the American sports media continues to fall over itself when it comes to the New York Giants Odell Beckham Jr’s catches, Yorkshire Vikings player Jack Leaning made what may be the most impressive catch in all of sports.
This kid didn’t get the ball, but it’s a story he will have the rest of his life.
The Tour de France is full of interest this year. If it’s not cyclists being kicked out, it’s horrific crashes that make you wonder how these guys do it. Ritchie Porte is out of the Tour with a fractured pelvis and clavicle.
This was a world class goal by a world class player.
Not sure what Hamilton’s Will Hill was thinking here but it didn’t end well for him. He was thrown out of the game.
There is a benefit to living in Denver, Colorado and being a baseball fan. That is that you get to watch Colorado Rockies third baseman Nolan Arenado work. Or as we say in Denver, ‘Nolan being Nolan.’
Tim Tebow, who once threw touchdown passes, shows that he can catch baseballs.
But how bout Jordan Spieth sinking this one from the bunker to win the Travelers Cup last weekend.
